What You'll Get
Kayakers, unlike pancakes or depressed turtles, muster the will to get themselves upright when flipped upside down. Float through life with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a two-hour standup-paddleboard (SUP) or tandem-kayak rental at Channel Islands Outfitters' Paddle Sports Center in Santa Barbara (a $40 value). Paddlers must be 12 years of age or older or accompanied by an adult in a tandem kayak.
The experienced seafarers at Channel Islands Outfitters' Paddle Sports Center in Santa Barbara share their adoration for the open waters by lending paddlers high-quality standup paddleboards and kayaks. Upright rowers can choose from Surftech Tuflite boards ranging from 8 to 14 feet in length or soft-top boards that proffer safe wave riding for novices or professional wrestlers entering their watercraft by elbow drop. Alternatively, kayaks allow Pacific pioneers to recline and test upper-body strength. Each rental comes with paddles and life vests, as well as leashes and wetsuits for standup boards if preferred, although fish-scented perfume to woo sea lions is not included. Whether standing or sitting, floaters can explore the entire Santa Barbara coastline, catching sights of dolphins, sea lions, and other wildlife skirting beneath the azure surface.
